Raspberry Eyes, Butterfly Bush, plant description and characteristics, review:
Raspberry Eyes Butterfly Bush Raspberry Eyes Butterfly Bush features showy panicles of fragrant hot pink flowers with purple overtones and orange eyes at the ends of the branches from early to late summer. The flowers are excellent for cutting. It has green foliage throughout the season. The narrow leaves do not develop any appreciable fall colour. The fruit is not ornamentally significant. The smooth brown bark is not particularly outstanding
Raspberry Eyes Butterfly Bush is an open multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with a more or less rounded form. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition. This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed.
It is a good choice for attracting butterflies, bees and hummingbirds to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. Height: 5 feet Spread: 5 feet Sunlight: funll sun Other Names: Summer Lilac Hardiness Zones: 5-9
